Vanguard University received the prestigious award from the American Chemical Society by Orange County local section. It is for the Outstanding US Chemistry Olympiad, a program aided materially by Vanguard University in allowing use of our facilities to test Orange County students at no charge. Orange County arranged awards programs to honor the top students and teachers, 135 students from 37 schools competed; two students received High-Honors and four Honors. Winners received medallions, gift-cards, and their names engraved on a perpetual plaque.
Carol J. Grimes, Chair, Education Committee, OCACS shared that “Irvine Valley College has hosted the first phase of the exam for the past 2 years, and Vanguard University the second phase. On behalf of the chemistry students of Orange County, and of our local section, I can’t thank you enough for your gracious hosting of our endeavors.”
A special thank you to the VU Chemistry Department for their fine work!
